to the united nations, susan rice came under fire from republican senators. senators john mccain and lindsey graham, back at it, trying to trump up the ambassador's role in the benghazi consulate attacks. they took their shots at ambassador rice this morning and the president hit back. >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's loyalty to a staff member. if looks could kill, the president's look would be a cruise missile. it was the most sustained anger, i think it will be the most sustained anger that we have seen and will see coming from this president in a display in a television news conference. now, there is no evidence the ambassador did anything wrong, regarding the benghazi attacks. president obama is not about to let a member of his administration get dragged th
of president obama's first term. on the short list u.n. ambassador susan rice as well as massachusetts senator john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the foreign affairs committee would be senator kerry. >> yeah, no, it is the irony of it all. kerry strategy staying under the radar probably is a good one. the only thing i think would be a barrier to susan rice's nominatio
's comments five days later? why that was still the line of spontaneous -- >> we talked some about susan rice. susan rice got a lot of the same information that we did. i'll make a comparison to colin powell. when colin powell went before the united nations, getting information from the administration on the facts. >> you said that within 24 hours -- [inaudible] this was five days later. >> i said they knew right away that there were terrorists involved in the operation. >> why wasn't that part -- >> wait, are you finished? what? give it to me. >> in other words, if he knew within 24 hours it was terrorist-related, how come five days later in the talking points for susan rice it still was saying it's a spontaneous demonstration? >> i assume dish didn't talk to susan rice, i assume she received information and he was not a part of briefing susan rice. information coming together with a different agencies that were involved and had jurisdiction, giving information to susan rice or anyone else, including our committee. >> i was following that. you answered the question. >> he was the head of the

susan rice, who has spent a lot of her week down on capitol hill meeting with senators, people like susan collins. what susan collins had to say last night about susan rice and let's come back and talk about it. >> i walked out of the meeting with a profound sense of disappointment. i actually presented susan rice to the foreign relations committee in the senate when she was first nominated to be the u.n. ambassador. so clearly i want her to be successful. i was proud of her. and yet i left that meeting with less of a feeling with about her judgment and about her suitability to be secretary of state. >> now, kelly, much has been made of this. and i think some of it rightly so, susan collins is not a conservative republican. is this -- is this just, again, posturi posturing? because susan collins, what you don't hear susan collins saying if nominated i will vote against her. you've heard few say that. what is this? is it real opposition there with susan rice, or is it kind of talking a warning sign to maybe get more on benghazi if nominated? >> reporter: i do think the leverage to ge

on capitol hill. >> from susan rice's point of view, this is a disaster, an opportunity to try to draw the sting out of the opposition that had been expressed by senator mccain and the others. obviously went in the opposite direction, when have you all three senator who is participated in the meeting, coming out after saying they have more questions now than they did before. this was a bad meeting, no doubt about it. i think part of the problem here is the continued focus by the white house, by susan rice, by people looking at it, on these so-called talk points that somebody provided to her. i will just put it this way, based on my own experience in government, nobody who's truly competent reads talking points for any purpose. if you are good enough to be a senior american official, you ought to be able to use your own words. i am not saying you make up policy. you obviously follow policy, as set by the president. but the notion that you can be a cabinet-level official and be given talking points that you simply parrot without further questioning is mind-boggling to me. >> it is intere

day of meetings with republican senators, u.n. ambassador susan rice has received a new vote of confidence from president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. the president called rice extraordinary during a cabinet meeting that she attended. clinton led a round of applause for rice, who is considered to be the front-runner to be nominated as clinton's successor, a point clinton later touched on during a news conference. >> susan rice has done a great job as our ambassador to the united nations and, of course, this decision about my successor is up to the president, but i'm very happy he has the opportunity with a second term to make a decision. >> but on capitol hill tennessee republican senator bob corker spoke with rice wednesday and later warned the president that the job of secretary of state is held at a higher standard than his other appointees. >>> elsewhere, later today, "time" magazine will release a provocative exclusive. the magazine calls egyptian president mohammed morsi the most important man in the middle east. president morsi tells "time" that althou

john mccain softening his attacks on susan rice after vowing to block the potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says it's not her fault. it's the intel community's fault. she just read their talking points. although john mccain threatened a senate filibuster earlier this month, he now is open to meeting directly with ambassador rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about it? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took, and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> the white house says no decisions have been made as far as cabinet selections for the president's second term. softening. >> that was heartwarming. now, you actually wrote about
and susan rice, ambassador will be announced for secretary of state. what do you think of that? >> the question we posed in the tease in the last block do you think you are safer with john kerry as a defense secretary, and susan rice as secretary of state, versus what you have right now. you have a general, four-star, maybe a five star general keeping the place safe. john kerry is the one you want? i don't think so. >> eric: the highly decorated soldier of any other soldier that ever held that -- >> eric: did he decide to keep silver stars or renounce them and throw them over the -- >> bob: he earned silver stars. >> eric: he denounced the service. >> bob: because of an illegal war. >> dana: it was reported today that eric holder will probably stay as attorney general. >> greg: that excites me because i'm a huge fan. it's incredible how the administration fail up. susan rice is appointing bill clinton as a marriage counselor. she has done nothing. we're in the passenger seat of car driven by 16-year-old that got his driver's lie sense and is texting. that's what i feel like. it

. now moving on to america's u.n. ambassador susan rice, she is one of president obama's top candidates to be the next secretary of state but some republican senators have vowed to block her nomination they accuse rice of being misleading about the september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. as you recall, ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were killed there. our state department correspondent margaret brennan has new information on why rice said what she said. margaret? >> reporter: good evening, scott. a government official tells us that references to al qaeda and terrorism were cut from the talking points by the intelligence community, not the white house or the state department. the edits came from the office of the director of national intelligence-- d.n.i.-- with the agreement of the c.i.a. and the f.b.i. u.n. ambassador susan rice relied on those talking points during an appearance on "face the nation" on september 16 in which she called the benghazi attacks a spontaneous demonstration by extremists not an act of terrorism. >> we do not have i
to the nomination of susan rice to be the next secretary of state. they said she was misleading about who was behind the attack on u.s. consulate in benghazi. terrorism was cut out of talking points. the direct of national intelligence, the dni. >> reporter: u.n. ambassador susan rice relied on those talking points during an appearance on "face the nation" where she called it a spontaneous demonstration. not an act of terrorism. >> we do not have information at present that leads to us conclude this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: republicans have accused her of intentionally making misleading statement, suggesting they tone down any references to terrorism for political reasons ahead of the presidential election. cia director david petraeus told congress last week that an early draft of the talking points did include a link between al qaeda and the attack. but the official told us someone in the office of the dni crossed it out because the links were deemed too tenuous to make public at that point. the head of dni is james clapper an obama appointee. clapper reviewed the points but the
's assessment, susan rice's assessment or your own assessment? >> i think what we first learned in the few hours and days immediately after the attack to today, the intelligence has evolved. certainly there was taking time to gather the information, to analyze it and put forward an assessment. what we do know is that when director petraeus came before us on the 14th, the information that he gave us was not the information that was put out by ambassador rice or by the administration. so it begs the question why wasn't a more complete picture given to the american public more quickly than it was? >> okay. you said that the intelligence has evolved, which means just from a layman's term, you would think that as they gathered information, they learned more than things would change. just from people sitting at home and not for partisans or for people who are on capitol hill, are you actually talk ing to each other about -- getting to the bottom of this or is everyone just talking at each other because i would imagine no administration wants anyone to die on their watch. >> certainly we are talking to
of your insights on this. susan rice is heading to capitol hill today to meet with some of her toughest republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >>
with prevacid24hr. >>> how do you say a person like susan rice is not qualified? you may not like her. i you may not like the administration. but don't say she's not qualified. she is the most qualified person that i'm sure any of you know, that the senators know. it is a shame that anytime something goes wrong they pick on women and minorities. >> come on now. >> i have a real issue with that. >> that was ohio congresswoman marcia fudge lashing out at the critics of u.n. ambassador susan rice suggesting their attacks are sexist and racist. standing right behind her was my next guest, california democratic congresswoman karen bass, who is also a member of the budget and foreign affairs committee. nice enough to wake up this early for us. good morning to you. >> thank you. thanks for having me on. good morning to you as well. >> obviously there is a lot being talked about with susan rice. 97 colleagues wrote a letter to president obama urging him not necessarily to push her nomination forward if it were to come up for secretary of state. do you think that that letter is based on racism and sexism
any talking points at all to susan rice the u.s. ambassador. and, i'm sorry, the u.n. ambassador for the u.s. and says he almost knew immediately this was a terror attack. what he tells congress behind closed doors today should be interesting to shedding some very credible light on what happened there. he was in charge at the time. visited, recently, even after, this whole scandal was coming to light. so, fascinating to be a flay on that wall today should be interesting. >> he is reportedly very eager to disseminate information and discovery over in libya and to share the time line of events as well. >> indeed. we will stay on top of that. >>> fighting between israel and palestinian has come to a temporary halt. israeli officials agreed to stop the wave of air strikes on gaza while the egyptian prime minister visits. >>> there is hope that egypt's leader will be able to broker some sort of truce between hamas and israelis. earlier 100 missiles landed in gaza bringing the death toll there to 19. >>> a record settlement for the worst environmental disaster in u.s. history. bp will
, hillary clinton intends to lobby. u.n. ambassador susan rice is said to be a top question but there are questions whether the public role in the wake of the deadly benghazi attacks would impact her chance and senator john kerry who chairs the senate committee on foreign relations is considered a contender and although that would leave an open senate seat for the democrats, that may not be a dealbreaker. >> in their favor this election, they had elbow room by the number of seats they won and many thought they wouldn't win, have that two-vote majority so maybe the president is willing to take a chance. >>guest: last time it was left open by the death of senator kennedy it went to a republican who was defied on tuesday. over two term presidencies over world war ii it is rare if any cabinet secretary to stick around for all eight years. >>shepard: it has been. urgent economic matters out there. what kind of effect does that have on the shuffle? >>guest: there is a feeling in washington that geithner would prefer to leave sooner rather than later but with shes of expiring tax c
of ambassador christopher stevens and three others. >>> also, the controversy over u.n. ambassador susan rice calling the assault spontaneous back in september has reached a boiling point. yesterday, president obama, in his first news conference since re-election, exploded at republican finger-pointing over rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had receive d, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> earlier, senators mccain and graham slammed rice, vowing to stop her rumored nomination as secretary of state. >> i don't trust her, and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> we will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination. >> well, back to petraeus, the "wall street journal" reports he was already at odds with his boss, national intelligence director james clapper,
, not the white house, wrote unclassified talking points for susan rice that were deliberately vague to avoid the compromising legal issues. that led to charges that politics were involved, something the spy agencies tonight say is just not true. >> andrea mitchell, who will remain on this story for us, thank you. >>> there is also news tonight on a story that got a whole lot of national attention on friday and had people spending the weekend passing around recipes for homemade twinkies and hoarding what they could find across the country. at its heart, though, this is a business story with a lot of jobs at stake. tonight, there may be a reprieve for hostess and their 18 thousand workers. more outside of chicago, kevin, good evening. >> reporter: hey, brian, well it would appear that all the screaming headlines and dire predictions about the demise of hostess food and of course all the snack foods we're all so familiar with. well, that may have been a tad premature, and hostess may have a longer shelf life than predicted. of course, they announced they were going bankrupt and liquidating, tha

that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups
